Default urgent help needed

hi removed my turbo today as i had sheared a bolt off that secures the downpipe to the turbo which isnt much of a problem to remove and replace

but that was just the tip of the iceberg ther is about 2mm each way left/right in the shaft of the turbo luckily it hasnt marked the rotars i can get hold of a service kits for turbos but not if they are ball bearing

its a full HKS bolt on kit any ideas if it is a ball bearing turbo or just one with normal bronze bushes before i start to pull it apart

thanks lee

I am pretty sure the standard HKS unit is a journal bearing turbo.
